It’s been almost a week since he clinched Sweden’s sixth Eurovision title in Vienna, and there’s simply no slowing down for Måns Zelmerlöw despite spilling his coffee on a taxi to ITV Studios in London. Oops.
Earlier today Måns made an appearance on the UK TV show This Morning, which was presented by husband and wife duo Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Måns starts off saying he’s had a busy week and that his Eurovision win in Vienna still hasn’t sunk in.
“It’s been so hectic I’m having the time of my life. It hasn’t really settled yet. There are so many doors that have opened and I’m just so grateful and thankful for getting this opportunity.”
As he previously explained to wiwibloggs, he says the stick man is a personal story about bullying, when he was 10 or 11. Måns played the role of the person who helped him and made him stronger.
Having tried to represent Sweden twice in 2007 and 2009 before making it third time lucky this year, Måns also goes on to mention Sweden’s six-week Eurovision selection show Melodifestivalen. He explains how the songs go on to become hit singles in the country. “That’s what Sweden is doing right,” he says. It was an eloquent response to Eamonn’s point about the UK’s Eurovision struggles with their selection process.
His Eurovision winning entry “Heroes” will be on his new album “Perfectly Damaged”, which will be released on 8 June so mark your diaries, y’all! His tour in Stockholm kicks off later tonight.
